Static is a story that suffers a bit from over-hype. Reviews comparing this to "Chimes of Midnight," could lead some listeners to be disappointed in what is one of the strongest Doctor Who stories since the 200th release.
'
The Doctor, Constance, and Flip arrive at a caravan campground where television and radio signals are prohibited by a mysterious manager who knows the Doctor even though the Doctor doesn't know him. And then many strange things start to happen including the apparent return to the dead to life.

This is probably one of Big Finish's best ghost stories. There's an eerie mystery with so many strange and generally creepy happenings occurring. The story is very well-executed with a perfect soundscape. It takes its time to reveal the truth behind all the strangeness. It takes its time, building suspense throughout and setting up the payoff. It uses time travel in a way that's fun but not over the top or cheesy. It's smartly written and features some great guest performances.

I quite enjoyed this one. The doctors companions have a lot to do and are used sorta well. The guest cast have a lot to say also. There is a lot going on, but the story doesn’t get confusing. This being said the reveal at the end of episode three seems a bit cheap. The best thing about Chimes Of Midnight was that the doctor had no idea what was going on in that one. Here however he seems to get a fair idea rather quickly. Overall I’d say it is a good listen, not a waste of time. Don’t go in expecting to hear something similar to Chimes Of Midnight

Before listening I'd heard this mentioned in the same Breath as Chimes of Midnight. Unfortunately it doesn't quite live up to that comparison. It is a good story and certainly one of Sixies better efforts of late but I really felt the climax let it down. It was a bit underwhelming at the end but still, a very clever idea and room for a sequel.

What starts as a standard spooky story set in a creepy caravan park becomes both more convoluted and more interesting as it goes on. The story twists and turns with a nice balance of story and character and by the end, becomes quite gripping. Although the resolution is a bit of a cheat, the final note ends the story on a spine-tingling high.
